Palmyra, NY (PRWEB) December 30, 2014
For the fifth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers recently announced the 2015 “Best Law Firms” rankings. Included on the list was Palmyra, NY law firm Foley & Foley.
Firms included in the 2015 “Best Law Firms” list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers. Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise.
“For 30 years, U.S. News has provided consumers with accurate, in-depth information and rankings of a wide range of institutions,” says Tim Smart, executive editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Law firms are an integral part of our rankings and a natural accompaniment to the law school rankings.”
The 2015 rankings are based on the highest number of participating firms and highest number of client ballots on record. To be eligible for a ranking, a firm must have a lawyer listed in The Best Lawyers in America, which recognizes the top 4 percent of practicing attorneys in the US. Over 17,000 attorneys provided almost 600,000 law firm assessments, and almost 7,500 clients provided more than 40,000 evaluations.
“For five years, we have combined massive amounts of hard data with peer reviews and client assessments to develop our law firm rankings,” says Steven Naifeh, CEO and co-founder of Best Lawyers. “Increasingly, clients tell us that ours are the most thorough, accurate and helpful rankings of law firms available anywhere.”
Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity. Foley & Foley has been designated in the first tier in Medical Malpractice-Plaintiffs and Personal Injury.
